Unless Garrett's face is made of Algae chips, I see no reason for his face to be consumed in any way. Such pessimism seems like a deficiency of Mandatory Fun? I will make sure to keep a close watch on you, fellow citizen. For your sake.

Garrett? That name does not conform to Friend Computers standard protocol for official designations. Answering to a designation that does not conform to standard protocol sounds like the sort of thing that only someone in a ”Secret Society“ would do. I can’t say for sure, because I have never been in a ”Secret Society.” Perhaps it would help if I passed all of this on to Friend Computer. After all, since Friend Computer knows all and sees all, I’m sure he’ll have no problem determining if such wanton disregard for carefully formulated official designations is behavior indicative of a ”Secret Society.” Don’t worry, I'll be certain to make sure Friend Computer knows that this information came from you so that you receive your well-deserved termination relocation.

In light of the lack of objections, the deadline to apply is now July 26th at 12:00 pm (noon) EST.

This is also the deadline for reporting any further incompetence, insubordination, and/or treason on that part of the other applicants.

Applicants are also free to create patriotic odes to The Computer, or to compose an epic, genre-bending rap-opera about High Programmer Ham-U-LTN, and his murder at the hands of nefarious Commie mutant traitor Aaron-B-URR.

Alas I wasn't able to get something up in time! So excited to see a solid number of players joining up though. I will lurk and watch this game, and perhaps at a later point I will have the time to join something like this!

I am looking for 2-3 new players to join this game in progress. Please see the first post in this applications thread for info about the game and how to apply. I will keep the applications open until at least 4/30/21, and possibly longer depending on how much interest there is.

The main game thread is HERE if you would like to look around. Feel free to post questions here or to PM me.

Friend Computer wants you to have fun. Fun Is Mandatory. Failure to have fun is treason. Treason is punishable by summary execution. Have a nice daycycle!

Still reading around the threads a little to see what might fit best in the current group but I have an idea of what I'd run, and I was sad I had to give this a pass on applying originally so this is an opportunity I have to take. Will post a character soon.

Also, never played Paranoia before and don't have any resources for it, hope that's not a problem?

It hasn't been for me, I've never played either. So far it's actually pretty rules light.... except for the rules set forth by Great Computer, which are inviolable.

Thanks, looking forward to seeing your application.

No prior experience with Paranoia is necessary, and you don’t need to have any books/materials. In fact, showing excessive knowledge of the “rules” could be considered a form of treason...

Form 639-D4/ rev. 12.8, Application for New Troubleshooter Commission and Assignment
right-aligned image
Designation: Siobhan-R-XTZ-1

Appearance
[X] Non-mutant
- Unremarkable, dour features
- Red hair; borderline treasonous in Infrared clearance, but acceptable in new security status
- Slender digits, proven useful for device management tasks (and retrieving lost screws from between hallway panels)
Personality
[X] Option 2: I am heavily medicated so as to feel happy about all aspects of my life in Alpha Complex

Strong skills
[X] Stealth
[X] Hardware

Weak skills
[X] Management
[X] Violence

Service group:
[X] Power Services
- Demonstrated proficiency for fine and small-scale part management and maintenance in common machinery
- Aptitude for electronics, esp. wiring maintenance
- Doesn't ask questions about oxygen levels
- Can say 'fecal pipe' without giggling
Secret society:
[X] None evident (pending further benevolent observation by Friend Computer)

Testimonial of Loyalty

First, I want to write that I loved food vat scraping. It's such a good job. Very satisfying and my back never felt better after a full daycycle shift. I'm really happy that Friend Computer gave me extra clearance and trusts me enough to work on shinier machines, but sometimes I honestly wish I could go back.

Lem-ING-1 would sometimes scrape the vats near me. They were good at the work too, and really happy about it. But I think they wanted to graduate in clearance even more, because they tried to frame me for sabotage. Honestly! I can't believe these sorts of people exist when we're all supposed to be part of Friend Computer's family. And only because they saw me inspecting some exposed wiring behind a panel that was open when I got there.

I resolved to test Lem-ING-1's loyalty before they could slander mine. As luck would have it, one of the wires spontaneously severed itself at that point, causing a momentary blackout. I took the opportunity in the clamour to conduct a cursory and impromptu search of Lem-ING-1's pockets and pack, but found nothing - nonetheless, I immediately called for assistance from a higher-security helper to arrange a follow-up search for both of us. Luckily, my earnest pleas overrode Lem-ING-1's lies. What was found on their person? Why, the bolts that were supposed to secure that panel in the first place! This was absolutely shocking. Naturally, Lem-ING-1 was immediately silenced and removed for formal assessment.

This act of public service apparently has promoted me to Red clearance. I accept the new responsibilities. Food vat cleaning was a good job though. The smell will stay with me whenever I recuperate in my relaxation pod.


Addendums
- A fictionalised encounter with a secret society rendered in a treasonous Asian fantasy world

I don't have any idea ho Lem-I-NGX is based on, obvs, but whoever he is, he should be very happy that he's Indigo status, though I'd watch out if I were you, he's of very high status and could easily get you disintegrated. Also, he sounds awesome.

FYII is for Indigo status (high up!), Infrareds get no initial for status[, so he'd just be Lem-NGX-1 as an infra. Also, very happy to see you joining in! Can't wait to report you for termination as a traitorous mutant and terminate you myself extreme prejudice work with you for the good of Alpha Complex. Paranoia is easy to pick up, but if you have any questions or aren't sure of something, Talkin is awesome and I'd be happy to help too. Like, say, if you wanted to know more about your secret society and mutant power, just PM me to tell me what they are. *innocent*

Ah dangit, I thought it'd be I for Infrared and it just fit too well. I hereby submit myself for the complementary re-education procedure provided by R&D's cerebral experimentation team.
